One of my best friends and biggest supporters is gong through the most terrible thing I can imagine– having to testify at the trial where her parent’s murderer will be sitting just yards from her. It’s taken more than 7 years to get this trial to finally happen. I am going with her so that she’ll have a friendly face to look at in the courtroom and she won’t be there all alone going through this trauma.
Why am I telling you this? Well, last-minute travel is expensive. The prosecution pays for her ticket and they’ve put her on Southwest Airlines, so I can’t use my Alaska Air miles to get a free ticket. If you have Southwest Air miles just sitting around, even just a few, please think about gifting them to me. It’s easy to do through their website, just transfer them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m not very good at asking for help, but here I am. I’ve got enough savings for a petsitter and a hotel, but it seems crazy to spend $800+ on a ticket to New Mexico. If I can scramble points together from friends, it would be a big help. Thank you!
